You are determined to keep the public safe and vow always to uphold the integrity of the law. Now make that commitment a career with a criminal justice degree from Post University. This could be your first step toward a rewarding and demanding position in federal, state or local law enforcement; counseling; case management; or other criminal justice jobs. With the foundational knowledge, you will build in our program; you can be prepared to enter or advance in the field or pursue your bachelor’s degree. Many of our graduates continue to graduate or law school to further enhance their experience and skills.

Program Highlights

As a student in this program, offered both online and at our Connecticut campus, you will develop skills in report writing, fingerprinting, ballistic examination and crime scene documentation. You will also gain well-rounded knowledge in the areas of law enforcement, forensic science, corporate security, criminal investigation, crime and punishment, and department of corrections as you study:

  • The structure of the American criminal justice system
  • The U.S. Constitution (Bill of Rights) provisions and how they apply to criminal laws and procedures
  • Effective communication on a college level to write and articulate criminal justice principles
  • Principles and procedures as they relate to your ethical and professional responsibility

Though internships are not required, you may find opportunities with the FBI, local and municipal police departments, forensic labs, courthouses, and nonprofits that serve as diversionary programs through court support services.

We keep our class sizes small to encourage active participation in discussions and to provide more one-on-one support from our professional faculty. They bring years of practical criminal justice expertise into the classroom and will help you gain real-world experience through off-site learning opportunities.

This is just one of the ways Post University makes your education personal. We also offer academic advising from a personal staff member from the moment you enroll.
